I've a problem with booting on a 
Phoenix Bios 4.0 Release 6.0
Intel Mainboard SE7505VB2
2x Xeon 3Ghz, HT (both enabled/disabled doesn't matter)
Intel SRCU42L Raid Controller

the box doesn't boot from a (tested) 4.8 and 5.0 disk.

(the box boots fine with linux, dos, openbsd)

on 5.0 the box says:
wrong format
error 4 lba 248

on 4.8 the box can't find 'kernel' and 'kernel.old' and stops
with "ok" boot prompt. a 'ls' says "/ no such file".

Do you have any hints for me? Didn't find an issue about that
in the lists/google.
